Swindon boss Danny Wilson would have been happier to cut down the entertainment levels, preferring a narrow win and a clean sheet than the 3-3 draw his side played out at Rochdale.
Michael Timlin put Swindon ahead but Gary Jones rifled home from the penalty spot and on-loan Scunthorpe striker Bobby Grant put Rochdale in front.
Charlie Austin and Michael Rose struck for Swindon before Jones claimed his second to level from close range.
Wilson said: "As a manager I'd be happy to see 1-0 wins every week because that is the way to build momentum, but it's often said that if you pick something up on your away games and win your home matches, you'll be okay.
"The game went from nothing happening to everything happening in the late stages. We got off to a fantastic start but possibly allowed them to come back into it. We showed great character to come back from 2-1 down to get ourselves in front and that's where we should have shut up shop, slowed things down.
"We didn't do it, they've wound themselves up again and their third goal was poor from our defensive point of view."
